BCU to host summer courses for budding designers

Birmingham School of Jewellery

Birmingham City University’s School of Jewellery is set to host a series of short courses and workshops over the summer for budding designers and those wanting to master their craft skills.

From June 27 and throughout the whole of July, over 20 short courses will run at the School of Jewellery.

Courses are available at intermediate and advanced levels, as well as some at beginner level for those who have little or no experience of working with jewellery.

Some of the courses will offer activities such as transforming a piece of silver into jewellery, building a jewellery business online and designing jewellery using iPads.

Frank Cooper, manager of the Jewellery Industry Innovation Centre at the School of Jewellery, comments: “The short courses give an opportunity to any person involved in the jewellery world or other creative industries to learn highly specialised techniques and approaches in a relatively short and concentrated time frame.

“We are proud of the School’s tradition of training for the jewellery industry that dates back over 125 years.”
